A popular city centre pub has been given the go-ahead to convert some of its rooms into guest accommodation.

The Borough on Dalton Square has secured planning permission to create 12 en-suite bedrooms by expanding into adjacent council-owned office space at 4, Dalton Square – part of the CityLab building.

Costing £400,000, the scheme will create 10 jobs and involve use of empty space on the second floor of the existing pub building and in the ‘coach house’ at the rear of the property.

The accommodation will be operated from the bar instead of through a separate reception area. A garden area is to be created in the rear yard.
